The classic Sunday morning radio story about how the kiwi gave up its ability to fly is now available as a picture book.

Long ago when the world was new the kiwi lived in the treetops with the other birds and played and sang all day long.

But when a plague of insects threatens to destroy the forest mighty Tane calls upon the birds to save the precious trees.

Who of all the birds will answer Tane's plea and what sacrifices will need to be made?

This popular radio story is at last available in book form, with beautiful illustrations by acclaimed New Zealand illustrator Dave Gunson. It tells the story of how the brave kiwi makes sacrifices to help Tane save his forest. Originally created in the 1960s, this story will delight children and bring back fond memories of Sunday morning radio programming for many adults.
